Latest post of the previous page:

This is going to be confusing have two lists on two forums, unless both are updated equally.

And you can confirm all the ones I contributed because I took them from 40 Years of Stock Car Racing and/or newspaper reports.

Not trying to brag at all here, but I'm positive the list that me and @Seibara have made is possibly the most complete and/or accurate. After cross referencing I couldn't tell you how many fallacies we have found with the many other flip lists out there on other forums! :lol:

I'm not saying to pick a side, but to avoid confusion, I would refer to the list we have made if you need any information.

This is an aftermath shot of a Terry Labonte practice or testing crash at Riverside in 1986, couldn’t find any articles on it but looking at some dents in the roof area just above the drivers window and damage near the roof on the back could of this possibily been a flip? What do you guys think? Click to enlarge.

I believe this wreck actually happened during the race, he broke through a concrete wall and, from what I understand, cartwheeled. It remains somewhat of a mystery.
